Last week's hatch...

Hello all!

Here are a few pics from last weekend, taken by Helen (I was doing crowd control). There is one that is very different - very caramel. The one with the blue food colouring on it's head was marked when I thought I was only going to get one out of the Blondie line. You will note a certain focus on one subject in the photos.... slightly biased perhaps???? =D

When all else fails, go spend time with your chickens. :)

Oh my how sweet! 12 all together? You do have some diversity of color, it will be interesting to see how they all turn out. Love the tiny purple theme ;)

Way too cute and fuzzy! I just love how plump they look. Do the darker yellow areas mean that develops into a different color?

Re: Last week's hatch...

Too cute Lisa!  They are good aren't they?  They just stay where you put them and don't freak and scarper like the chanties!

I got 2 reddish ones and 2 more almost that red.  So far as I can tell, one is really black on the feather tips (and I bet will be a red mottled pullet) and one is normally coloured (male at a a guess).  None of the Mommas this fall were red (one of the spring ones was), all the rest were the honey colour.  I think I may have a few brown males, got some combs sprouting and on a couple of browner birds. 

Love the pics, beautiful.  That d'uccle is sweet.

When I reread my question I realized how Newby-ish it sounded :oops: just wondering, as SLF has posted above, which chick colors will develop into which adult colors.

Re: Last week's hatch...

That is the big question Monika.  I think next year I will leg band and photograph all EOs we hatch and see what they turn into.  There was no time this fall, I think it will help, but the chicks being so light really the marking are not that easy to see. I know I need to understand the barring genetics better anyway befroe I could intelligently predict and even record the chicks markings without missing something.  They certainly do vary.  It seems to me, the paler whiter ones have more grey/black on them in the end, but no proof.
